How We Work

We work with any material and projects of any size. Our collaborative design approach empowers and guides you through the complexities of original fabrication. On time and within budget.

You have an idea. Napkin sketches are welcome!

We work with you on the feasibility and design.

DEKA builds and installs with quality materials.

We owe our success to our larger community and the multidisciplinary expertise of our team. Beyond our core skills of architecture, computer science, and traditional fabrication, we have access to an extensive network ready to tackle the most challenging of tasks during the fabrication process.
